Your upcoming movie Endgray Manor - in a few words, what is it about?

 

Six girls from the modern day are sent to Endgray Manor, which is a place out of time and out of area, where things aren’t as they appear. The correctional facility was established so that disruptive girls from the modern world could be re-educated in the ways of expected female behaviour. Many, on arrival, try to resist, but attempts are futile and no good comes from their refusal to co-operate. Those that do learn quickly how to survive in the system, will never return to their old ways. Those that don’t learn, well, there’s no use for them at Endgray Manor. It is as if the brutish professors have put them under some kind of spell, but there’s nothing magical about Endgray Manor.

 

What brought the project into being in the first place?

 

An idea came to me one day at work. So I sat and wrote for 4 hours. After these 4 hours the script, cast and creative vision for the whole film project was formed and I decided to move forward with it. It was a slow steady build up to begin with, as I didn’t want to ask people to give up their time for me and my film idea. Once I asked though, people were very encouraging and all wanted to be involved, which is an amazing feeling especially when they are all very busy, talented folk.

 

What were your sources of inspiration when writing Endgray Manor?

 

To be totally honest I wanted to write a script that incorporated a certain couple of the people as the main characters of the plot. I wanted to develop a piece that could be acted with sincerity and create a story that could be easily learnt and performed by these certain few people.

Influences for the piece are George Orwell’s 1984 and the idea of a Borstal type institute, but for girls, not boys. It could be labelled as a St Trinian’s meets Bad Girls in Utopia-cross.

 

What can you tell us about the intended look and feel of your movie?

 

There will be a very old, minimalistic look and feel to the film. There will be elements of psychological and spooky atmospheres created on set to be portrayed through the story. There will be a narrative flow to the piece only interrupted by the system working its “magic” on the new girls. Overall it will have a sinister, smooth, mystical quality that will entice both actors and viewers.

 

Anything you can tell us about your key cast and crew yet, will you be in it, and how much (creative) control will you have behind the camera?

 

Crew – here I must mention that John Sullivan is going to be an incredible force behind the camera and the whole thing will not exist without him there on set. As for creative control for me behind the camera, this will be a well kept secret until it turns out how I want it to and then I will take all the credit! On a serious note though, I visualised the costumes when I wrote the piece and have sourced these. The way the action is caught on camera is all very much written into the script and will need to be accurately executed in order to create certain effects needed in the film.

 

Cast – there are too many to mention and I wouldn’t like to single some out and not others. I assure you they are all fantastic actors, or will be by the time I’ve finished with them, and no part is insignificant so it will be a great set to be on with so many in the business and all integral to the piece.

 

One of the key components of a movie like Endgray Manor seems to be the location - so what can you tell us about yours?

 

I can’t say too much about the location but the locations I have chosen are beautiful and awe inspiring. They haven’t been used for film before - which is a great shock as they are incredible spaces and venues.

Endgray Manor is not falling down, but if you touched it you might think it would crumble from the lightest graze. Like a boarding school, there are dorms, classrooms, dining rooms and outdoor courtyard areas for activities, but not like the pastimes you’d expect at a boarding school. Although the Manor is impressive in size, it is as if there is no room for extra clutter or personal items, minimalistic yet grand...

 

As far as I know, as we speak Endgray Manor is still in its fundraising stages - so what can you tell us about your fundraising efforts?

 

Going directly to www.kickstarter.com and searching for “Endgray Manor” is a great way to find out about our fund raising activity. With the 11th of May as the deadline for our money to be raised we need your help, now! You can also follow the link direct to our project page and make a donation... http://www.kickstarter.com/
projects/1794613455/endgray-manor-a-borstal-project?ref=live
.

Make a pledge and help us get started, there are rewards!

 

Once your funds are raised, how do you plan to proceed, and any idea when and where the film will be released onto the general public yet?

 

The plan is to enter the film into a film festival in Nottingham in November this year and possibly even into other established film festivals. Those that make a pledge and chose a copy of the film as a reward will receive this by January 2014. Keep up to date with us for promotional trailers and extras.
